With discrete contracts and long-standing customers, news from Jack Richards & Son can seem a little slow by comparison with some of the ‘noisier’ companies in our industry. Traditionally, we don’t like to shout about our own achievements, preferring to keep our successes between ourselves and the customers who inspire us to achieve them. However, recent points of note are shown below for the sake of general information:

Palletways arrives at the Canary Islands

Palletways, Europe’s largest provider of express distribution services for palletised goods, is proud to announce that it now provides services to and from the Canary Islands.

The service is delivered by its Iberian network Member Loto Logística and this now completes the network’s coverage across the whole of Spain and Portugal.

Jose López-Infantes, General Manager at Loto Logística, said: “We wanted to be part of a network which mirrored the quality of service and work ethos at Loto Logística and we have found just that in Palletways”.
The head office of Loto Logística is situated in Coslada (Madrid) with depots in Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria where it centralizes the collection and distribution of goods across Europe.

Rachael Alpha, Managing Director at Palletways Europe GmbH, said: “This expansion is part of our wider strategy to bring our services closer to customers across Europe. It also reinforces our position as Europe’s largest network for the express distribution services for palletised goods.”

Luis Zubialde, Managing Director for Palletways Iberia, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Loto Logistica and to be able to provide a dedicated service to the whole of Spain. The company has proven experience and I’m sure our business in the area will grow from strength to strength.”

The Palletways Group is made up of 300 depots and 11 hub operations, through which it provides collection and distribution services across 11 European countries. The Group’s distribution networks are made up of independent transport companies who share resources to deliver small consignments of palletised freight to market faster and more cost effectively.
